Spring Color Schemes

Best Spring Wedding Color Schemes

A spring wedding calls for a color scheme that isn’t too dark or too light. Since many people see spring as the beginning of something new, some color schemes that work well for spring weddings include pink and bright yellow with some pistachio thrown in. Combing soft pink with pastel yellow creates a mood that seems to compliment the spring season. With the more muted pink and pistachio the pastel yellow makes for a great contrast.

For couples who want to include yellow in their spring wedding color scheme but don’t want the yellow to be too bright, bright green, sage and coral as well as a softer shade of yellow (think the shade of a lemon) can be an excellent choice. In this color scheme the most eye- catching is the coral because the soft yellow helps it stand out more.

Whether a couple is having a spring time wedding on the beach or they just want a muted color scheme, a combination of beige, a light shade of pink and a shade of green that resembles sea foam is more than appropriate for the season. Couples can have a wedding with a tropical feel to it, even if their wedding doesn’t take place anywhere near a beach.

Sea foam green can also be incorporated into a wedding color scheme that includes purple, orchid and lilac. This color scheme makes decorating easy as flowers, ribbons, streamers and other festive accessories often come in these shades. It is also easy to choose jewelry for the bride and her attendants when this color scheme is used.

Another option for a spring wedding color scheme for couples looking for something a little bolder is a combination of light and bright shades of pink with some navy blue thrown in. The lighter pink will balance out the navy blue and the bright pink adds a touch of excitement and energy to any wedding day.

Couples that enjoy being outdoors often choose to get married in the spring, as it is generally the season that is most conducive to outdoor weddings. One popular color scheme that compliments the day is light pink, strawberry red, putty and terracotta shades. The combination of these colors strikes a balance that seems to represent the spring season accurately. The earthiness of springtime is represented by the terracotta and putty shades will the lighter pink softens up the color scheme and is perfect for a spring wedding.

Though many couples associate the color orange with the fall season it can also be used in spring wedding color schemes. Rather than choosing a bright orange shade, a perfect choice is tangerine, along with bluish gray and green. The tangerine is still bold enough to balance out the lighter bluish gray shade.

Choosing a color scheme for a spring wedding usually involves striking an appropriate balance between bright colors and more muted ones. There are so many possible color schemes a couple can use in spring.
